Sat Jul 1415:38Martinez meets with Harper after Nats star jogs to first
NEW YORK (AP) — Washington Nationals manager Dave Martinez met with star Bryce Harper on Saturday a day after the outfielder failed to run out a ground ball in the fifth inning of Washington's 4-2 loss to the New York Mets."I've spoken to Bryce and that's a conversation that will stay between Bryce and I," Martinez said.Harper came up to the plate in the fifth against hard-throwing Noah Syndergaard with one out and two runners on after singles by Adam Eaton and Anthony Rendon. Syndergaard threw the 25-year old slugger a 96 mph slider and Harper hit the ball sharply, but right at Mets shortstop Amed Rosario for an inning-ending double play.Martinez dismissed the notion that there would be any lingering issues from having a talk with his star player."I forgot about it, I really have," the first-year manager said. "We have a ballgame to win today and he's been a big part of that."Although Harper is tied for second in the National League with 23 home runs, he's hitting a career-low .214 ... [More]
Sat Jul 1413:48Pols play at Nationals Park, but that's not Trump's game
WASHINGTON (AP) — During every previous All-Star Game in Washington, the president was part of the story. That might not be the case this year.Ask former Republican congressman Tom Davis about the prospect of President Donald Trump throwing out the first pitch at Nationals Park on Tuesday night, and the pageantry of the office isn't the first thing that comes to mind."It's very disruptive when a president comes to a game because they stop all the traffic. People can't get in the gates," said Davis, a Nationals season-ticket holder.He's also familiar with Trump's preference for friendly crowds, noting the president got just 4 percent of the vote inside the Washington city limits in 2016.Trump's anticipated absence Tuesday night would allow Nationals Park to perform its usual role for elected officials and other political figures: as a bipartisan oasis where differences are set aside while everyone frets about bullpen moves and Bryce Harper's approach at the plate.Trump would have a go...

NEW YORK (AP) — Noah Syndergaard pitched out of trouble in a rusty return from the disabled list and helped himself with an RBI single as the New York Mets beat the Washington Nationals 4-2 on Friday night.Amed Rosario tripled and doubled, both times over Bryce Harper's head in center field, and the Mets won for only the sixth time in their last 26 home games.

Fri Jul 1313:38All-Star Game a celebration of baseball in Washington
WASHINGTON (AP) — Mark Lerner's first letter to then-commissioner Bud Selig after his family bought the Nationals asked to host the All-Star Game."It's something I've wanted from the moment we got the team," Lerner said.Thirteen years after Major League Baseball returned to Washington and almost that long since Mark and father Ted Lerner were chosen as owners of their new hometown team, they finally get to throw their party. The fourth All-Star Game in the nation's capital and first since 1969 is a celebration of a new generation of Washington residents rediscovering the connection to baseball that for so long wasn't a part of the town's sporting identity."When we first came here, baseball had been gone for so long — basically an entire generation," longtime Nationals infielder Ryan Zimmerman said. "You almost had to re-learn how to be baseball fans. In the 13 years or so now, it's been fun for me to be here from the beginning because the organization, the team has kind of grown al... [More]

Fri Jul 603:45Stars and stripes: Sending baseball's best to Washington
NEW YORK (AP) — Now that fan voting is finished, it's a good time to take a hard look at All-Star Game selections.Which players are worthy of participating July 17 in Washington, and who gets left out?Let's touch on this topic first: Shohei Ohtani is incredibly talented and fascinating to watch, but the Los Angeles Angels' two-way Japanese star simply hasn't been on the field enough to earn a spot. Not at pitcher OR designated hitter.Ohtani just returned to the lineup from an elbow injury that's knocked him off the mound for now. He's only made nine major league pitching starts, and the Angels have limited his at-bats all season due to concerns about the rookie's workload.So while it would definitely be fun to see him in baseball's summer showcase, there are several more deserving American League sluggers at DH. It wouldn't be fair to deny one of them in favor of Ohtani. And he's unavailable to pitch at this point.Let him win his invitation next season with a fully healthy and produc... [More]
